MENFRI’s main goal of the project is to create a favourable environment for the development of an organized, innovative and job creating business sector in the Mediterranean region while facing climate change.

To reach this goal, MENFRI aims to establish a network of forestry related research centres, cooperatives, public-private partnerships and SMEs, based on the initiatives of eco-innovation, business-friendly environments and market replication, in order to reinforce the forestry sector and integrate it in the conservation of forest goods and services and communicate about the initiatives and progresses at all levels (European, regional and local).

To create this network, MENFRI will built a common online space in transfer from science to innovation in forestry. It should facilitate the source of studies about the viability of suitable products derived from or used by the forestry sector and will provide a network of contacts throughout the Mediterranean, favouring interaction and public-private partnerships.
